Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

I have purchased three or four pairs of these boots in the last ten years. The first couple of pairs were high quality boots and I was very impressed, averaging two and one half years of service per pair. I purchased a pair in April of 2013 and they are already in need of being replaced. Both snaps on the storm flap has broken and the flap has ripped loose from the inside of the boot. I am very disappointed in the quality that these boots have become. I, at one time, swore by these boots and recommended them to numerous other public safety officials. Now I will be searching for a different brand.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

I've had 9 pair of these boots over my 16 year career in law enforcement. I've noticed a rapid decline in the quality of the boot and a significant increase in the price. The highest price I've ever paid for this boot is $115.00. I'd pay the high price if the quality of the boot was equivalent.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

So far so good! Got these for the incredible toe shine and Rocky name, and thus far they have not let me down. I have BIG feet for a female, and these do the job with comfort. I'm not sure what everyone keeps talking about though, saying that they can't get their foot back in without unlacing. I have no problem whatsoever so far. I LOVE these boots.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

I ordered these boots after talking with several people who loved them and swore by them. After the first few times wearing them, I noticed it is nearly impossible to get the boots to stay snug on your feet. I also had them for less than two months bbefore the zipper broke and they had to be returned. I will be going back to the boot that I have trusted for the last 5 years.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

I had a pair of these boots about eight years ago and they were great. When I recieved my new pair in September of 2009, I thought someone was playing a joke on me. They felt like hard plastic and the snaps broke within the 1st week.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

I work security and we patrol a ton. they are bit harsh on the feet before they are broken in. in comparison to the 5.11 these boots are awesome. I went through 3 pairs of a similar boot by 5.11 in the 18 months I have been employed, but the rocky boots I have had for over 8 months now and I will say they have out lasted ALL of the other boots I have worn!!!!!

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

Horribly uncomfortable. Just wore them for one hour on duty and had to take them off. There is no padding on the sides, feels like there is raw leather against your socks. The toung doesnt sit propperly inside the boot, putting alot of pressure on top of your foot. Boots dont fit properly. Toe room is fine, extremley roomly around the heel of your foot. My foot leaves contact with the sole EVERY time I step. Have to unlace the boots everytime I took them on or off, since the zipper doesnt open far. Worst pair of footwear I have ever owned.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

The side zips work perfect for my 10-1/2. Maybe if you have boats for feet they might not. I'm a boot camp instructor for the Navy and march over 5 miles a day in these, on my feet for 18 hrs a day, 7 d/week. Boots are 4 yrs old, soles are almost bare.

These boots are great. I wear them every day at the firehouse. Just bought a 2nd pair after 5yrs. Still wearing first pair (with much wear & tear), but still holding up and comfortable. Does take a few days to break them in.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

This boot is amazing. I have owned these boots for over a year now, and they have held up great. A good thing is that they have a natural shine on them so you do not have to shine them daily. They work great for duty, and also court appearances.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

I have owned two pair in the last 7 years so I guess I get about 3-4 years out of each pair. I don't polish them as much as you should and being around water in the fire service is rough on a pair. Great product, durable & comfortable.

I have to reorder these boots about every 2 years. For the type of work I do as a paramedic, they hold-up pretty well and are quite comfortable.

I got these boots and at first I enjoyed them. One morning I was putting them on and the side came right off. I was able to return them to the shop I bought them in. They did look good and I did get store credit from rocky. So I give them 3 stars.

Paper thin leather. The laces are cheap and weak. Very uncomfortable boot. The bottom feels like hard plastic. I wouldn't make my worst enemy wear these boots.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

I bought these boots after reading the reviews and on the advice of a co-worker.I normally have no problems with footwear but after two months I'm going back to Bates. The sole is very hard and my feet ache after walking around all day.I also have a prob with my toes rubbing on the top of the boots toe.My pants constantly come unbloused with these also all day long along with the laces.

Working in a prison was very hard on the boot, they held up great! Kept a very good shine, only problem was with my zipper not staying all the way up and the short length didn't look very well bloused.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

The boot is fantastic. Firstly, these boots are super light weight. I run in these boots constantly; pure comfort!!! The shine on the boot is fantastic. These boots are impressive looking. Only negative, the zipper does NOT open enough to get your foot back in. You have to untie the boot to get your foot back in.

The best boot I have ever owned. I have owned Bates and Wolverine boots before. These boots are very comfortable, and they are very EASY to get your foot into. The boots respond very well to and Old-Fashioned Spit Shine with a MIRROR FINISH! HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!!!!!

I work as an Administrator and SRT memeber in LE and these boots are perfect while either in the field or in the office. This is a good bargain and have never had any trouble with them. I have a plate on my heal bone from an ol injury and these boots don't seem to bother like other boots do.

I bought these on a whim as my first pair of zipper boots. I am extremely pleased with the boot in its entirety. I am planning on buying another set when these eventually wear out.

Best duty boot I've ever had and I have had several. I have worn this boot for approx 4 years now and the sole shows significant wear but the boot still looks great. Going to order a second pair. Highly recommended.

These boots are quick to get off and on for calls, last well, and hold a shine well. Very comfortable With a thick pair of boot socks. A must for fire service proffesionals. I will not buy any other boots again. Little pricey, but quality.

Rocky Mens 7 inch Side Zipper Paratrooper Boot

I ordered these after reading all of the great reviews. I found the zipper does not operate smoothly, and it doesn't open far enough to get your foot into it without pulling the laces almost all the way out. Also, these boots are made of Vynul! Once you get them on, they feel good... Just takes 10 minutes to lace 'em up every time you want to put 'em on.

This is a fantasitc boot. As picky as I am, the only complaint would be that I have to be careful about scuffs. If you are in EMS, you need to treat your feet to these boots.

I've worked in the fire service as well as EMS for six years. This is by far the toughest and best looking boot I've ever owned! I'm ordering my second pair now. They may cost a little more but you get what you pay for!

Absoluetly. I have done 16+ hours of foot patrol in these boots and they have served me better than any boot I have every worn. If you value your feet, invest in these boots.
